Getting through the airport in a decent amount of time is tough enough as a solo traveler, doing so with children in tow can make it even harder. Toys, strollers, and snacks—the list of carry-on items is endless— but, one company is trying to take a little stress out of your family getaway: Born To Fly.
The husband and wife team created Born to Fly Baby, a travel-friendly carry-on bag that doubles as luggage, a changing table, and most importantly, a stroller. The compact bag looks like a regular suitcase from the outside, however once you unlock its (seemingly magical) powers, you’ll find everything you could ever want in a family-friendly travel bag.
The larger bottom compartment opens up like a normal suitcase to store everything from toys to clothes and extra blankets. The top compartment unzips to reveal an easy-to-use, pop-out seat that turns the entire bag into a stroller.
The stroller can be used both rear and front facing and features a removable, reclining seat that can be used separately at your destination. The design is made to accommodate children ranging from newborn to 4-years-old, it also includes a portable changing table and a dirty laundry organizer—you know, just in case you find yourself in a sticky situation mid-flight.
The best part? It all fits in a standard overhead bin. Plus, the bag has a USB charger so you’re never without your phone (or a device to entertain your little ones!). The Born to Fly Baby Travel system launches on Kickstarter on November 7th, 2016.
